Actor Curtiss Cook talks to Wilson Morales of AOL Black Voices about working on Martin Scorsese's Shutter Island:
How did you get attached to the film?
Curtiss Cook: I got attached to 'Shutter Island' the way I would think most g-list actors like myself do --- not like Mr. Washington or Mr. Smith get approached. I got the first call to come and audition for the casting. I read the scenes for the camera, heard a very nice thank you and left the office trying to put it out of my mind. I was able to do this because I didn't hear anything from them for a good three months later and that was a call saying that Mr. Scorsese wanted to meet with me. Cloud nine, that's where I was, on cloud nine.
